Pro-Abortion, Pro-LGBT Democrat Leaves Political Office to Infiltrate Catholic Church
Washington Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib has announced that he will be leaving his post to infiltrate the Catholic church and join a prestigious order within the church.
The far-left Democrat announced last month that he would “not be running for re-election this year, and instead will pursue a different calling by joining the Jesuit order of the Catholic Church.”
Habib has been on the record being in favor of abortion and LGBT rights throughout his time in the public limelight. He supported bills that would force health care providers to provide abortion coverage as maternity care. He voted against a measure to invalidate a public accommodations law on the books allowing transgender individuals to use opposite-sex restrooms, claiming that the current law safeguards “a civil right to be included.”
“Wish you’d been on the right side of history when marriage equality first came up? Here’s another chance: equal transgender bathroom access,” wrote Habib in a tweet.
He also supported a referendum to legalize gay marriage in his state back in 2012 when he was running to be state representative. Habib, who is legally blind and lost his eyesight as a child, compared the plight of the LGBT community to his own struggles.
“I am proud that Washington will lead the way in passing marriage equality at the ballot box,” Habib said during his 2012 campaign.
“Having lost my eyesight at a young age, I have always been particularly sensitive to the dignity and respect owed each individual, and there is no doubt in my mind that denying consenting adults the freedom to marry deprives them of an essential civil right,” he added.
Habib is so radical that he even posted a video from far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in which she criticized a Catholic hospital for refusing to perform a hysterectomy on a patient for the purposes of their gender transition.
“There is nothing holy about rejecting medical care to people, no matter who they are, on the grounds of what their [self-ascribed gender] identity is. There is nothing holy about turning someone away from a hospital,” Cortez said, contending that ”the only time religious freedom is invoked is in the name of bigotry and discrimination.”
Habib claimed her speech was ”a great articulation of Catholic social teaching” in a Twitter post. Despite his aggressively socialist political leanings, he is adamant that his jump from politics toward the priesthood is a selfless act that he decided to do after his father died in 2016.
“It was my father passing away in 2016, a health scare of my own and the kind of toxicity that became central to the political discourse that all intersected in 2017 to cause me to feel a significant sense of desolation. By hitting that low point, I was then able to realize that this was not bringing me joy,” Habib said in an interview with Washington State Wire.
“Because already as soon as I became Lt. Governor, I was thinking about running for governor or running for the Senate. I had a book deal that was in the works and all of these things, and it didn’t feel right to me. So that question allowed me to explore the question of what God, or even the universe, wants for me. What is my natural alignment with the world around me? That’s what led me to explore what would end up becoming this new vocation,” he added.
Fake news rags like the New York Times that are usually hostile toward Christianity are gushing over the selflessness of Habib’s decision. Whether his intentions are pure or not, Habib joining the Jesuit Order continues the progressive infiltration of the Catholic Church.
